What does this do?

  • I'm a little confused by this, what does it do that adding "Category:User page" doesn't? It looks as if it would automatically switch the category in the event it's moved out of user space, but if that happened the article would be edited anyway to explicitly add it to the appropriate categories.

  • Oh, is this to prevent adding user pages to a category when a user includes it on a user page? That makes more sense now. (Admin 00:36, 12 November 2007 (EST))
    • Yeah, I expanded the Usage to make it a bit clear. Basically, we have a ton of templates which assign categories. Right now, any time somebody uses them in userspace, it adds the article to the mainspace cat. This should give us more flexibility.--Hardvice (talk) 00:39, 12 November 2007 (EST)
      • Gotcha. It wasn't until I thought about it some more that it definitely made sense. The additional usage information is great...and this is a useful template, nicely done. (Admin 00:40, 12 November 2007 (EST))
        • Now we just have to track down all the nine million templates that assign categories. If the strike lasts, we might want to consider making organizing and purging the templates a project. It's kind of hard to find what you're looking for. BTW, is there any way to get a bot to remove Category:Templates from any template that already has a category? That way we could at least get all of the subcategories of Category:Templates on one page, which would be a nice start.--Hardvice (talk) 00:56, 12 November 2007 (EST)
          • Sure, I'll whip one up. I was working on writing my own from scratch, but I think I'll just use an existing Perl module instead. (Admin 01:07, 12 November 2007 (EST))
            • Awesome. I almost did them by hand last night, but I thought I'd better ask if we could get a wizard to do it.--Hardvice (talk) 01:12, 12 November 2007 (EST)
    • This template now assigns Category:User templates or Category:User subtemplates where appropriate.--MiamiVolts (talk) 13:34, 17 January 2008 (EST)
